Micro SIM card adapter?

Hello!

I currently using iPhone 4S, but like to try the Samsung Focus Flash. I understand I need a Micro SIM card adapter. So, I can use WP. 

Anyone know, which Micro SIM card adapter will work good with Samsung Focus Flash?

Thanks!

Yes, that one should be fine.  I looked back through my old orders on Amazon and the three-pack that I actually bought is in the link below.  It looks the same as the one from Trident, so you should be good with either one.  The second link is for only one.

Any microSIM card adapter should work with the Focus Flash.  The adapters are not anything fancy.  I had some free ones that wouldn't fit into the phone.  Any of the ones that actually have a hole for the microSIM card instead of a flat tray for the microSIM card to sit on should be OK.

That's the style that I would avoid. The extra plastic makes it hard to fit into the SIM slot.

 

I have had more success with this kind: http://www.amazon.com/AFC-Trident-Micro-Adapter-iPhone/dp/B003THJQVU/ref=sr_1_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&q...

 

Even though it says for iPhone and iPad, it will work with any microSIM card to fit in a full-sized SIM tray.

Thanks!

 

So, all I have to do is, take my iPhone 4S micro Sim card and place it on adapter?  This will fit in the Samsung Foucs Flash w/o no issues?

Yes, you would place the microSIM card in the adapter, then slide it into the Focus Flash.  You may have to hold the microSIM card in place as you slide it.  I thought that the type of adapter that you had in your link would make this process easier, but I cracked the adapter when I tried to slide it into the phone.  The extra plastic makes it too big to fit into the slot.  That's why I recommended the adapter that I did.

 

I haven't used the Focus Flash, but I switched back and forth from the iPhone (and now other phones with microSIM cards) to other phones that used the full sized SIM card for over a year with no problems.  Using the adapters is easier for me than trying to get new SIM cards each time from an AT&T store.

So, this three-pack? Does it contain 3 adapters or 3  microsim card cut outs?

It contains three adapter and three SIM cutout guides.  They come in little packs of an adapter and cutout in each one.  You can order only one, if that's all you need.

Those cutout guides is to make a microsim card. Which I don't need, because I already have one from iPhone 4S. Correct?

I ordered this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XCCYV0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01

 

Why is there a little groove on top thou?   Will it be ok?   

 

 

This looks better, but not fast delivery.

You're welcome. I think either one is fine, but I don't know what the groove is there for. Maybe it makes it easier to slide out of the phone.

Only if it's easy.  I think that the one that you ordered should be fine.  You can tell me if the groove makes it easy to slide out of the Focus Flash when you get it, if you decide to keep it.

I got the focus flash and adapter, but when I place the adapter in the phone, it says sim error.

Now what?

Thanks!

I hate to see that you are having trouble now, after I assured you that this would work.  :smileyembarrassed:

 

Does the phone say SIM error as soon as you put it in, or is it once you try to connect to data?

 

The only time that I have gotten "invalid SIM" messages was when I put a SIM card from a different carrier into a phone that wasn't unlocked.

 

Have you tried to reinsert the SIM card?  Sometimes the SIM contacts don't line up correctly the first time.

"Does the phone say SIM error as soon as you put it in,"     Yes it does.

 

"Have you tried to reinsert the SIM card?"   Many times.

I recommend this one, which is similar to the first one your linked to.

http://www.amazon.com/AFC-Trident-Micro-Adapter-iPhone/dp/B003THJQVU/ref=pd_cp_cps_0

 

It's much better; you simple put the micro SIM into the adapter and then you can put it into whatever phone you choose to use it in. If you deal with the other one you linked to, the latter requires a sticker to retain the SIM card. Not only is the sticker annoying, it can sometimes get caught in in the slot especially if the SIM card slot is one of those that require you to slide the card in. If you're curious I bought a 100 pack of both adapters while I was a broad (for about $10 a pack) a year ago, and I given them away to many friends and every one of them agree the one on that's linked over the one that's uses the sticker.

I'm a little confused when you say that the other adapters require a sticker to use the microSIM card in them.  The stickers that come with the adapters are templates for people to use who have full-sized SIM cards but need to cut them to fit the a phone with a microSIM card slot.  I use the adapters without those stickers, of course, because these items are for opposing purposes.
